He says he took his sister hostage and if cut off the broadcast, he will never see his sister again. He orders Emre to find an amount of money from his friends within an hour, in live broadcast.

Mustafa (40) is a factory worker, a father who loves and watches his family. Mustafa enjoys responding to what Ibrahim asked him. One day,  Ibrahim finds an object unknown to anyone. Mustafa, who does not know what it is, tries to slur over Ibrahim first. But the idea of the mother, asking the new teacher to the town, makes Mustafa nervous. Mustafa starts to be hostile to the teacher who is said to be "new to the town". Mustafa is even more annoyed with every view of the new teacher who has forgotten his hat in the town coffee house. Mustafa's relations with Ibrahim and his mother, which have been stretched from day to day, will gradually deteriorate. Ibrahim, however, decides to preserve the peacefulness of his family by finding out what the object is. Üsame Sekizkardeş was born in Istanbul in 1994.

Film Crowdfunding Masterclass - Wednesday 1st May, Wednesday 8th May. Greenlit is an entirely new, UK-based crowdfunding platform for film and moving image. We launched in February, with the goal of creating a service that really works for filmmakers, and provides the support, training and community needed to raise funds and find your audience. As part of our support for filmmakers, we’re offering subsidised training for filmmakers on the subject of crowdfunding. The introductory course runs over two sessions, a week apart. The first part of the course runs on Wednesday 24th April, with the second session taking place on Wednesday 1st May, both running from 6.00 to 8.30 PM. We’re delighted to be hosted by the Cass Business School, and in particular by the Launch Lab business incubator. Courses will be held in The Franklin Building, 124 Goswell Road, London EC1V 7DP. Map. The nearest tube station is Barbican. The total cost for each two-part course is £80.00. The course is facilitated by Greenlit CEO Peter Storey, and is for anyone considering running a crowdfunding campaign, or wants to understand the relationship between crowdfunding, audience-building and community. We look at the creative demands, the psychology and the practical tools of launching and managing a campaign. Topics covered will include: What is crowdfunding? Probably not what you think it is. What is marketing, and what is a brand? Probably not what you think they are either, and why you should be bothered. Telling your story on a bigger canvas. The stages of crowdfunding: Development, Preproduction, The Shoot, Post and Distribution. The tools for the job. Scheduling, CRM, email. Making your presence felt. Who’s going to do what? Where to find help where you need it. Identifying your audience. Finding your audience – where are they hanging out? Who are the influencers? And how do you introduce yourself? A rewarding experience. Rewards are not just merch, and you are not running a gift store. The Price and Product. The three act structure of a crowdfunding campaign. Social proof – because we’re all primates. Social media - many conversations, not a broadcast. Converting browsers into backers, and backers into superfans. We want to help filmmakers at all stages of the journey, so we’d like to understand you, your project, and your needs a little more. There are a couple of questions on ordering about you and anything you may be working on, and your answers will be kept in strict confidence. We’ll be arranging more sessions going forward, and tailoring the training to the experience of the filmmaking community. Any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch. Here's what some previous participants had to say. "Brilliant evening at the Greenlit masterclass tonight hosted by font of knowledge Pete Storey If you’re a filmmaker looking to educate yourself in the craft of crowdfunding this is the course for you!" "It was brilliant ... If you can get down to next Greenlit crowdfunding masterclass you should!"
